On another personal note.........decided to upgrade my car and will be picking it up this afternoon.   We dropped in to Honda 2 Saturdays ago just to look and they had a promotion on.   Ended up getting $500 worth of extras and bought a Honda Civic Hatch (5 door) Auto VTI-L 18.   I was going to trade my current Honda but decided to let "BEEF" have it for $7K and pay it off, as he's working a lot more now.

 

Funny though....when I looked at the car I wasn't going to buy it unless the clubs fitted in the boot.   Took my clubs into the dealership and threw them in the hatch........perfect fit.   B)  

 

Don't tell me its friggin beige for gawds sake, Frank!!!! :rolleyes:

Ha, no.   I went with Dr Sues and BEEF, and there was no way I was allowed to  get silver. (which is the Beige of cars)    There was a white model there and with the black trimmings, which we liked, so went with that....unfortunately it's Collingwood's colours.   Going to make it even worse when we go to Vic Roads today and change my personalised plates over from the Accord.     :D

Stableford yesterday at Cranbourne.    Initially it was listed as a stroke round and MM but our tee time was delayed by the lady members so the committee changed it to Stableford.....unbeknown to our group.    So we played stroke and counted putts.   Playing off 11 for the day and hitting off the 10th tee in a 2 tee start.

 

Woops....watch this space later as I have to go for coffee and I'll finish this later.

Woohaa, hang on a sec.

Silver is stylish.

White is for accountants, actuaries, analysts and tax agents. Oh, and politicians official cars.

...............and I resume my earlier review of yesterdays game at Cranbourne........

 

Crap first 9 (Back 9) - 47 OTS or 13 points.    Lots of shots from the bunkers and couldn't drop a putt.

Crap second 9 (Front 9) - 45 OTS or 14 points.   A couple of blow out holes (Triple on 8 :rolleyes: ) so it just wasn't going to be a good day.

 

 

Course was in great condition, greens very quick (they just kept on rolling) and bunker sand was very nice.     I haven't played there for a few years and was surprised that they had made a new hole (14th) and the old one has grown over.

 

I was minus 6,000 points on Genisis Cup and moved out .5 shots on the handicap as I lost a flag.   Now 10.9 and with our Doubles Match Play coming up next Monday at Southern.

OOM # 2 yesterday at the North course of Rosebud CC.   Playing stableford off 12 for the day.   Hit off the 10th first in showers and fairly strong winds

 

Can't remember all the holes so I wont go into a hole by hole

 

Back 9 - 18 points and wiped the 18th hole after taking a 7 (?)  

Front 9 - 18 points and wiped the 2nd hole after being in the green side bunker for 2 and finishing in a previous players divot that hadn't been raked properly.   Generally played pretty steady and hit some good shots but could convert the birdie chances.

 

36 points got me 3rd in A grade and without the wipes I had a good chance to salute.   Such is life.

 

Liked the course, which was in good condition EXCEPT for someone in groups ahead of us who walked down the face of a few bunkers and left their foot prints there.   :angry:    Even saw a group of 6 playing ahead of us on the front 9 but we did get around in around 4 hours.....pretty good considering the conditions.
